From America to Oman, Escape Is the Common Ground

The Big Business Idea Competition 2006, the only one of its kind in Oman, was launched yesterday under the auspices of Ahmed Hassan Al Dheeb, undersecretary of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, at the Knowledge Oasis Muscat (KOM) yesterday.

The Knowledge Mine (TKM) -- Ernst & Young Big Business Idea Competition 2006 -- as it is known, is an initiative to spot ‘would-be’ entrepreneurs who want to turn their ideas into a successful business.

The competition is designed to encourage Omani students, researchers and entrepreneurs to act on their talent, ideas and energy to produce tomorrow’s leading businesses, which hopefully will generate enough employment opportunities for other young Omanis.
